Six weeks of city centre road closures are set to begin later this month, as a major traffic overhaul continues.

The fifth phase of the Prince of Wales Road work is set to begin on Monday, October 28 and continue until late December.

It will include wider pavements, new seating and improvements to the area's appearance, as well as the creation of new disabled and motorcycle parking facilities.

A pedestrian crossing will be upgraded to a toucan crossing, and Agricultural Hall Plain to Queen Street will be resurfaced.

The turning area around the tree on London Street will become pedestrianised and resurfaced, meaning the nation's first pedestrianised street is set to be re-paved.
